SU Congrats Card

SU Nailed It Bundle

March 1, 2017

I am in a swap with a few gals each month, and we decided to play
with the SU Nailed It bundle this time around.

I love a fun fold card so I made this simple one that is easy to mail:


I absolutely love the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder…super cool!
I embossed a piece of Silver Foil which is quite elegant but if you are doing a large number of them, you can use Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil like I did on this card.


I thought the “Nailed it” sentiment fit into a congratulations theme so I used a sentiment
from SU Scenic Sayings on the front of the card. Of course, the Stitched Shapes Framelits always
add a special touch to a card, don’t you think?


I also added the word “YOU” from the SU Jar of Love to finish off the sentiment.

SU Bountiful Border/Tin of Cards Notecard File Box #2

July 25, 2016

I hope you saw my  Notecard File Box in my last post…

For our Product Class last week, the girls took home either the SU Tin of Cards or the SU Bountiful Border stamp set after making the file box and eight mailable notecards with envelopes- two each of four designs. All four cards have the stripe patterned DSP from the new SU Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and three scattered White Perfect Accents– super cute embellishments .

Both of these cards are in the landscape position. The first one uses a sentiment from the SU Tin of Cards and a flower/leaves from the Bountiful Border with a Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush palette.

This next  card uses the star and another sentiment from the SU Tin of Cards. The green dots come from the SU Bountiful Border stamp set. The color palette is Pacific Point, Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, and Cucumber Crush.

SU Bravo with New Bohemian DSP and Boho Chic Embossing Folder

May 29, 2015

You saw that fun Bohemian Designer Series Paper on my Paper Share Post– You can see it HERE.  I wanted to showcase its rich, vibrant colors with this Congratulations card- perfect for the graduation parties coming up really soon!


 I LOVE a paper with a ton of colors to play with- this one has Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Delightful Dijon with Very Vanilla as its neutral base on some of the papers. The new Delightful Dijon color is making my sorrow of losing More Mustard a few years back a little less severe.

SU Bravo Bohemian

My first step in making this card was using the NEW Boho Chic embossing folder on the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment with the SU Bravo stamp set.  My Stampin’ Write markers worked perfectly to do a little sprinkling of dots to jazz up the sentiment a bit. Since it was a photopolymer, I actually cut the stamp apart so I could use multiple colors without having to mask any words! I cut it cleanly without trimming so it would pop right back together again when I want it whole!

I cut the banner with the new Triple Banner punch that can cut up to 2″- I will be using that a lot for sure! Various stars were cut out with framelits from the Star set- big one, the Scentsational Season (retired)- smallest one, and another medium sized one, I can’t place right now.

SU Bravo Bohemian Inside

I  also used the SU Bravo stamp set for the inside sentiment. You can just stamp the words or add  a simple pocket holder for a gift card or money.


 The  inside bottom was decorated with stamps from the New SU Bohemian Borders stamp set. I am very excited that Stampin’ Up designed and created a DSP, an embossing folder, and a stamp set that coordinate!

Getting excited…..We can order soon- JUNE 2!

SU Bravo with Star Framelits

I started my morning playing with the ColourMe Challenge # 46 and the SU Star Framelits.


The star framelits are soooo cool! I used them on Christmas cards to cut out the SU Bright and Beautiful stamp set and loved how “professional” they looked. With the hundreds of cards in my stamp room,  I had to make some Congrats cards on the spot this weekend when someone asked for some because I had none in my stash! So, now I have one waiting to be sent to celebrate someone’s good news thanks to the SU Bravo stamp set and the Star framelits.

SU Bravo with Star Framelits

You can easily die cut the stars and layer them or you can “inlay” them for another fun accent. I layered my white star on the Night of Navy star then, inlaid my Tangelo Twist inside the White star and finished it off by layering the Night of Navy star on the Tangelo star. I added a  few simple scattered confetti stars from the SU Star Border punch.

I am running a special on the Star Framelits and the coordinating SU stamp sets

Many Merry Stars, Bright and Beautiful, and Be the Star.
